I get super frustrated when people respond with 1-3 words. Especially if I am talking about something I care about, or need an opinion on! I feel like there is no point in even texting back, sometimes I don't. It sucks when it happens, especially if you are in a relationship with the person or like the person. If my friends do this I just do not respond. haha
I don't get frustrated because I take it as a subtle cue: when people give you one word answers, the conversation is over. I don't take text as seriously as most, so if someone seems to want to drop the conversation I do that. It's no big deal to me.
One thing about the new systemis that it discourages the 'point farmers', the half dozen people with apparently no life, who answered EVERY QUESTION, usually with anonymous one word answers... now I see them complaining because theyre required to at least put in some filler.
These people cause us to lose AMazon cards, because the admin is forced to raise the point requirement to give these clowns all their cards.
Especially if you're in a conversation, you might have asked someone a question about their day or whatever, then he/she asks "How about you" or something similar, you respond and the only response you get is "Ok". I mean? I tried bringing up a subject by asking you a question, you ask me the same thing and then you leave me hanging with an "Ok"... Do you expect me to constantly try to keep the conversation going.
PS. I'm sorry I once talked to a girl who pretty much always did this but claimed she did like talking to me so I could talk about it all day :P
